Knowledge sharing is a social action involving the collective behavior of a group of people. However, prior research on knowledge predominately focused on individual behavior. Furthermore, previous studies did not capture the multiple facets of this group behavior. In this research, we propose and justify a framework for the explanation of knowledge sharing in organization context as a social action, integrating multiple theories, i.e., social capital theory, institutional theory, and adaptive technology structuration theory. A series of propositions are proposed and discussed.
